Bonfire night 


Bonfire night is one of my favourite nights of the year! Why?? I just don’t know but I love the atmosphere and watching the fireworks and standing around the fire on a crisp autumn evening. This year I went to Hastings Bonfire with my best friend, little sister and two little ones (not my little ones)! We went and stood in Hastings Pier where we could see the beginning of the procession which was incredible as always, I can’t believe how many people take part, we then sat in the deck chairs the pier provided with a mulled wine and waited for the bonfire to be lit and fireworks to start. Hastings yet again did not disappoint to carry out an amazing evening and watching it from the Pier made it all the more special!!

Not another Roadtrip!!

Yesterday evening Holly and I went back up to the O2 Academy in Islington to go and see HRVY perform. He put an incredible show on and his support acts Ellie and Roadtrip were also amazing!! We had so much fun at the gig meeting new people and learning new songs that we could sing along too. We stopped for food at Frankie and Benny’s on the way up and Holly and I went for Chicken Romana Pasta Bake and Salted Caramel cheesecake which were delicious we also had the spring fever mocktails which was juicy and refreshing. I loved going to the concert and the atmosphere was lovely seeing all of HRVY’s fans cheering and whooping for him.

Hastings Seafood and Wine Festival 


Yesterday was another day with my bestie and her family and my little sister Mollie. We went down to check out the Seafood and Wine Festival because Paul’s brother had his BBQ Project van down there. There was so much delicious looking food and loads of amazing tasting wines on offer and we couldn’t decide what we wanted to eat or drink so we tried a bit of pretty much everything. It was lovely to see so much local produce on offer and the atmosphere was buzzing. After the festival we hit the arcades with Evie and had a blast winning lots of silly prizes!! We then needed a sweet treat so we tried out the new Kaspas in the town centre. The treats were amazing but the service was awful. All in all it was a fabby fun day out with some of my most favourite people!!!

Top five tips for starting School or College! 

I know quite a lot of people who will be starting a new school or college this year and I know how nerve wracking and how much of a change it is going from primary school to secondary school or secondary school to college. I am going to share with you my top five tips that I think should be followed when you are starting a new place (even a new job)!! I know a lot of people that have dropped out of extra curricular activities due to it not being cool or because their new friends don’t do it!! If you follow these tips you shouldn’t have to give anything up!! 

1) Be Yourself – this may be quite an obvious one but it is amazing how many people try to adapt their personality to try and fit in or make things out to be better than you are. Sadly you will get found out in the future so from the very start just be yourself and don’t feel ashamed about being yourself either!! 

2) Smile at everybody – A smile goes a long way and may even be the highlight of somebody’s day. There is no harm at smiling at everybody and you never know it may lead to a conversation and maybe even a friendship! 

3) Don’t be afraid to be nervous – I know that lots of people feel nervous about starting somewhere new but you won’t be the only one. If you don’t know where your class is or what is going on ask somebody, they will tell you. If it is a teacher they will be used to be asked where something is and even an older student has been in the same position as you so can help you out. 

4) Don’t try and be friends with everybody – In the real world not everybody will like you, that’s just the way it is. Don’t be disheartened by it and don’t try and force a friendship. You will soon enough make your own friends and these people will be genuine friends rather than fake friends. Making friends takes time so choose wisely and don’t change yourself to be friends with one person! 

5) Have fun!!! – I finished school in 2013 and college in 2014 (after one year). I know that school and college years will be the best years of your life where you may make life long friends. Trust me!! If you work hard, be yourself and have fun not only will you have an awesome first week but you will also have an awesome first year!!! 

I will be thinking if everybody starting a new chapter in their lives this week and I wish you all luck and success. Remember that no matter what happens in your first week you are amazing and the only person you need to make happy is yourself!!

Wellies and Wristbands 


This August bank holiday I took seven of my wonderful Guides from my unit down to Foxlease in the New Forest for the Wellies and Wristbands festival with my Best friend. It was their first ever Guide Camp where they could sleep in a tent, go off and do activities independently and then listen to amazing bands and artists in the evening! The bands performing this year were incredible and we were lucky enough to see My Forever, The Hara, Taken, The Shades, HRVY along with many other artists. Roadtrip also closed the show on the Friday night when I was lucky enough to get a picture with them. They then came back to perform again on the Sunday and again I got to talk to their manager Blair and then chat with the boys again (mostly Mikey as he is my favourite). The boys are just so down to earth and normal and that is what I love about them. The Roadtrip boys really know how to put on a show and entertained the crowd so much on both of their performances. The girls were louder on the second time round because more of them knew who they were. My Forever performed amazingly well on the Saturday evening and unfortunately they were on an early slot so there wasn’t as big of a crowd but, again I got to have a chat with them and got a picture with two of the members who were such lovely guys!! Taken and The Shades also performed incredible sets that the crowd loved but unfortunately I was unable to meet them! My bestie and I also made some new friends in a ranger leader from Somerset and two Guide leaders from Bournemouth who were absolutely lovely ladies and I truly hope we are able to stay in contact with them! I had an absolute blast this bank holiday but it is now nice to be in the New Forest cottage with my family!

An afternoon tea 


If you want a quiet and tranquil afternoon filled with tea and delicious cake then you must go and visit Jo and the lovely staff at this delightful tea rooms in East Sussex!!

A birthday surprise!!

Whose silly idea was it to go to LEGOLAND on Easter Saturday!?!? That’s right it was mine and I’m so glad we did go because we had an amazing day!I borrowed my friends daughter to take her to LEGOLAND for her birthday treat, I can’t believe she is nine already she needs to stop growing up so quickly! As a surprise I had also invited my little sister, my other friend and her stepdaughter along for the day. Driving to Windsor with two kids is hard work when you have never driven that far before and have to listen to Ed Sheeran and Rag n Bone Man on repeat. We left town at around 7.30am and got to our destination for the best day ever around 10.00am, of course we would have got their earlier if we hadn’t stopped for an emergency Starbucks. LEGOLAND is an amazing place and there are so many rides to go on, from the miniland which was just as good if not better than I remember it to the Drench Towers which opens on the warm summers days. Food at these sort of places can be so blooming expensive so I decided it would be a nice idea to take a picnic. I made up a low fat pasta salad with some other nibbly bits and of course sweet treats like cookie and jam tarts. Going on the rides really took me back to my childhood when I used to visit with my friends when I was the girls age. Keeping them entertained whilst we waited in the queues was a little bit of a challenge as there were only so many rounds of eye spy you could play in one spot but, with some silly songs and games we eventually made it to the front of the queue without any whinging and whining. my favourite ride without a doubt had to be the Atlantis submarine ride where you rode in a submarine and saw loads of fish from around the world. We left the park around half past four and were all quite hungry so we went into Windsor for dinner at the Harvester which was delicious and much needed before the two hour drive home. Although it was a fairly long day I hope that everybody enjoyed themselves and had as much fun as I did (because to be honest the only reason I took Chloe was because I wanted to go). One mistake I did make for the day was wearing jeans instead of jeggings as they took much longer to dry out and I did have to walk around like I had wet myself for a while!! We got home around eight o’clock in the evening with two very sleepy little girlies and lots of happy memories of the day out!! I really hope that Chloe’s birthday surprise was a great one and that she will remember it for a while. Thank you Mazz for allowing me to borrow your daughter and thank you Holly, Evie and Mollie for coming along as well!!
